Keitata solo exhibition of photography "Beautiful Gap Landscapes"

Keitata, a photographer who has been capturing “gaping landscapes” that one cannot help but laugh at with the tenderness, sadness, and humor that emanate from her photographs of defenseless human moments, will hold a solo exhibition at chignitta space from July 9 (Sat.) to 24 (Sun.)

 

A “gap” is a moment when a person or a landscape is unprotected, a state in which the viewer is completely unaware of others.  Keitata captures in photographs the serendipitous chance encounters that seem to be drawn to that moment, and copywriter Keita Kusaka writes about them in words.

Usually funny “gap landscapes”, this time the photographs are developed on the theme of beautiful “gap landscapes”, and the framed print works will be exhibited and sold.
